New Information from AHCPR: October 15, 1999
The Oregon Health Sciences University, in its capacity as an Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC), has completed an exhaustive review of the literature regarding the effectiveness of interventions to rehabilitate children and adolescents with traumatic brain injury (TBI). A summary of that report is now available from AHCPR.
At AHCPR's request, the EPC conducted this study as a supplement to the evidence report it prepared on TBI rehabilitation for adults, released in 1998.
The 5-page summary of Evidence Report Number 2, Supplement, Rehabilitation for Traumatic Brain Injury in Children and Adolescents (AHCPR 99-E025), is available online at: http://www.ahrq.gov/clinic/epcsums/tbisum2.htm. Print copies are available from the AHCPR Publications Clearinghouse by writing to P.O. Box 8547, Silver Spring, MD 20907, or calling 800-358-9295 within the U.S. or (703) 437-2078 from outside the country.
Copies of the full evidence report are expected to be available in late fall 1999.
